Take a walk through our woodlands and enjoy all it has to offer

Dudmaston Estate has lots of offer with managed woodlands, beautiful walks and tranquil pools - a real haven for wildlife. The estate is run sustainably with conservation at the heart of everything we do. If a tree has to be removed every piece of it is used, whether for logs, furniture or woodchip for our boilers - nothing goes to waste.
